2002 Vauxhall Vectra SRi 150 2.2 petrol from UK and Ireland
OK car, apart from the cam chain
Cam chain and tensioner needed replacing at 60000 miles approx.
Catalytic converter needed replacing at 67000 miles approx.
Cam chain and tensioner went again at 76000 miles approx.
EGR valve went wrong at 65000 miles approx.
Front wheel bearing starting to rumble at 77000 miles.
I like the car, and it is very roomy. Fuel consumption is reasonable for a 2.2 petrol.
However I do feel very let down with the failure of 2 cam chains and tensioners. This item was designed to last the life of the vehicle!! If you search on the net, you will realise it seems to be a problem with this model engine. All I can say is, before you buy, check if it's been replaced, because it's not a cheap job.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
